Friday Nov 19. The sparrow has landed in the land of the Eagle.

I am back in the good old U.S. of A. The flight from Amsterdam was one of the best Atlantic crossings I have flown. I slept through most of it in Business Class…. My train connection from Washington D.C. arrived in Richmond, Virginia¬†after a two hour ride, at 20.30 hours local time. Jeannine and Gabrielle picked me up and it was around 4 a.m. Amsterdam time¬†by the time that I went to bed here in Chesapeake.

In an hour I will see an eye doctor here to see what can be done about the damage done to my right eye.

I am excited to start on my long planned writing project. This is an ideal spot. A harmonious household, a quiet room. I love Holland and the Pacific North West in the summer but Virginia has mostly bright skies in the winter. It is crisp the trees are still in all the diffeerent shades of gold and red.
